Snow More

Snow More

It's happening... a winter with no snow!  I cannot even believe it is mid-January already and we have hardly had any of the white stuff.  I figured living in Vermont one thing you would at least be assured of would be a nice cold and snowy winter, sure, I get that it...

Fall’s Final Finale

Fall’s Final Finale

Well, it has literally already snowed here, and I still hadn't gotten around to posting any Fall pics!  I spend most of my time on instagram, but I always enjoy putting together a few full-size shots.  This was definitely one of Vermont's most gorgeous autumns yet,...

Go Jump in a Lake!

Go Jump in a Lake!

I don't know about you, but this record hot hot heat has made me seek out even more lakes this summer than ever before!  I am definitely more of a pool person because I'm skittish about strange things bumping up against me ha ha, this is probably one of the reasons I...

Spring’s Spectacular Sunsets

Spring’s Spectacular Sunsets

This has been a truly amazing year for sunrises and sunsets here in Vermont!  Maybe it's because we moved and now we have a wide-open west-facing field that I've noticed the sunsets more, or I've been more energetic and out and about on foot early in the morning for...

Shoulder Season Part II

Shoulder Season Part II

Goodbye winter!  No one is sadder to say this than me, I absolutely love winter, and even though I feel like Vermont is the Scandinavia of the United States, I still sometimes think I should actually be living in Scandinavia, I just love winter that much.  Norway,...

That Winter Light Though

That Winter Light Though

What amazing sunrises and sunsets we've had this year!  It has been bitter cold, and definitely not nearly enough snow, but the light this winter has been absolutely amazing! It's so funny, it's either a snowy winter and not that cold, or a bitter winter but there's...

Wedding Wonderland at White Doe Farm

Wedding Wonderland at White Doe Farm

I'm not sure why it took The Deer in the Shires so long to connect with White Doe Farm ha ha, but it finally happened!  You meet so many wonderful people on instagram, and I recently had the opportunity to connect with the beautiful White Doe Farm, just a short jaunt...

Go Snow!

Go Snow!

We had a few big snows in November and early December but none lately so I'm so glad I got out in it while the gettin' was good!  It's frustrating to be a nordic skier as opposed to downhill, most of the nordic ski mountains don't make snow so we're reliant on Mother...

Fab Fall Roundup

Fab Fall Roundup

In case you missed it on the 'gram!  It was a super busy Fall this year, it was much better than last year for sure, and we moved into our new house at long last so I've been super busy with that but I still got around to all the special spots, here for you in one...

Back at It in Vermont!

Back at It in Vermont!

Stowe, VT Well Summer 2021 has been a bit of an improvement over 2020 I would say, we were so lucky in Vermont last summer that Covid really died down here so we got to do some in-state traveling and play a lot of golf. But the fear of the pandemic still was hanging...

Spring Has Sprung (Kind of)

Spring Has Sprung (Kind of)

I'll be honest. Spring is my least favorite season in Vermont. And I use the term "spring" loosely because we don't really have one. Yes, the blooms start, with the forsythia and then those smart enough to plant daffodil and tulip bulbs, and then everything else...

The Second Quiet Season

The Second Quiet Season

Vermont has two quiet seasons, also known as Stick Season and Mud Season. While these aren't official seasons that the Department of Tourism would recognize ha, because there's nothing nice about them, but they do have a beauty all their own. Stick season is in...

Nothing but Blue Skies…

Nothing but Blue Skies…

Sure the snow and bitter cold temps can be a challenge in winter, but I think the number one complaint of Vermonters would be the lack of sunshine. You can definitely turn up the heat, and snow can be gorgeous, especially when it has first fallen, but if there's no...

Beauty at your Doorstep

Beauty at your Doorstep

One real silver lining to this pandemic (and believe me, there aren't many lol!) is that I have spent more time in and around my town. I feel like sometimes you ignore what's right in front of you, but with less travel (even within the state of Vermont, I've been to...

Christmas in Vermont

Christmas in Vermont

It's the most wonderful time of the year! And though it will look a little different this year, Vermonters are decking their halls and trimming their trees! We're having a special event in our state called #vtlightstheway where our Governor has asked Vermonters to...
